Earlier today, a lone gunman opened fire in the baggage claim area of Terminal 2 at the airport in Fort Lauderdale. The sounds were deafening. Bullets repeatedly penetrated bodies. Everybody ran. When the smoke cleared, five people were dead and countless others were wounded. The carnage hasn’t fazed most citizens. In our country, these types of events happen all the time. Shootings are an integral part of our culture. We don’t know how to live unless people are getting shot.
Jesus knows exactly what to say to a society like ours, “Dumbasses…Put Down the Guns!”
